You may either send your tax-deductible donation by check to CC, and be assured that 100% of your donation is delivered to:

CC is “Raising RxExercise Action Above Awareness”

Charities Challenge Mission: To Improve Health/Fitness, Reduce Health Risks, and Enhance Disease Management via Goal-oriented RxExercise Training Programs, Engaging Events & Active Community Partnerships…
Because there is NO CURE for all the ills associated with lack of exercise except… RxExercise!

CC events proceeds support CC’s RxExercise Events/Programs/Services.

Additional tax-deductible donations received by CC through the past nine years have been donated to other non-profit organizations, charitable causes, needy individuals, and RxExercise Ambassadorships.

You can also fundraise for any charitable cause via CC & Crowdrise!

While training for and participating in any CC Events, you’re also welcome to fundraise directly for and with those funds going to any other IRS recognized non-profit charitable cause of your choice.  Go to CC’s Make A Donation page and then expore CROWDRISE linked there to set up your own fundraising campaign for either CC’s RxExercise Programs or a charitable cause of your choice. CC receives no funds from any fundraising you set up to benefit any other charitable causes. CC’s Crowdrise page will display how much money you and others raise for either CC or your charities of choice. Start your own Charities Challenge fundraising whenever you’re ready to add those steps to all your steps in training & racing CC Events. Ready…Set…Go!
